Should I sue Kent, WA police for false arrest?

Location: Ely  |  Law type: general practice attorneys

I was driving a semi-truck in Kent, Washington last mid-November. I pulled over in a private parking lot because I was three hours early for the delivery time. Approximately three hours later I commenced to pull out of the parking lot. I took a left turn to go around the building because there wasn't enough room to turn right into the street. I noticed the truck was dragging as I went forward but it was dark outside so I couldn't see the reason why. I pulled out into the street and noticed that the truck was losing air pressure. At this time, a police officer pulled up behind me and came to the driver's side window. He asked me "where'd you pick up that cinder block?" I exited the truck and went around to the rear passenger side of the trailer. I noticed a giant eco-cinder block was wedged under the trailer and it had tore loose the brake line. This is where the air leak was. Another officer arrived and performed a field sobriety test on me. I couldn't maintain my balance because of my bad knees. He put me ;under arrest because he thought I was under the influence. He then drove me to the Kent police station and gave me a breathalyzer test in the parking lot. The results were negative. He then had me booked into the jail and a nurse drew my blood (results still pending). I spent 7 days in jail and then my sister was able to come up with $1,000 bail money. I was kicked out onto the street and spent the night across from Catholic Community Services. The office opened the next day and I was able to contact Veteran's Services. They sent an uber driver who took me to a Salvation Army shelter in Seattle. I spent 7 days there and my brother wired me some money for bus fare back to Salt Lake City where my vehicle was parked at the C.R. England Terminal. It was then that I found out I'd been fired. My cell phone, wallet, clothes, and medical supplies are still in the truck: either in Washington or Salt Lake City. My next court date is February 22nd and is on Zoom because I live in Nevada and can't afford to go to Washington. I currently have no job and no source of income.
